WEB EXCLUSIVE Vactec is a new company started by Chuck Thiele, former president and CEO of Motan and senior consultant to Conair. Located in Kalamazoo, Mich., Vactec designs and builds equipment to solve specific problems. Its first products will be a new style of vacuum pump that reportedly can cut energy consumption by up to 50%, three automatic material-selection assemblies for pneumatic conveying, and a “fast, simple, and inexpensive” mold-change system, says Thiele. Vactec will be exhibiting at NPE 2009 next June in Chicago. (269) 599-3975 * e-mail cwt1001@gmail.com
